COVID-19 UPDATE 

We hope you've all been keeping safe and well! As the government has allowed gyms to reopen, we are preparing to restart some classes at The Armoury in the near future. These will be reduced capacity sessions with enhanced health and safety arrangements. We'll let you know the details as soon as we have them. In the meantime, keep training in your bedrooms, kitchens, gardens, wherever!

IN MEMORIAM: GRAND MASTER TERUYUKI OKAZAKI

In light of recent developments in government advice regarding social distancing and, in particular, the closure of schools, we regret to inform you that all classes are cancelled until further notice. All gradings for our members are also cancelled.

We will, of course, let you know as soon as we get an indication from the relevant authorities that it is safe to resume training. Please regularly check our website and Facebook page for the latest information.

In the meantime, we hope you keep developing your karate by doing some stretching, working on your basics and kata, and watching instructional videos online. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch at info@hampsteadkarate.co.uk.

Stay well and see you on the other side,

Hampstead Karate Club
